's vital for us to help them. you know, when a young man or young woman who deserves to go to college doesn't because they can't afford it, they lose, their family loses, and our country loses as well. when a young person goes to the college they shouldn't really go to because they can't afford the college they deserve to go to and want to go to, they lose, their family loses, and america loses. and so it's been a passion of mine that we give the middle class, not just the poor but the middle class as well, help in paying for college because it is so expensive but it is so important. and so we have in law now something called the child -- the american opportunity tax credit. it's legislation i wrote. it helped 9.1 million 235e78s get a -- families get a tax break on their children's college tuition last year. because of the american opportunity tax credit, more parents and students now qualify for tax relief to pay for college expenses, not just for two years but for a whole four years of study. it gives a $2,500 tax credit right off your taxes to families whose income is up to $180,000 a y

to let us know his whole apartment was booby trapped and if anyone opened that door, there would have been more carnage. >> it's interesting that he did that. the ultimate plan -->> i can't figure that out. >> i think his ultimate plan was to get away and when he was, then, caught in the movie theater parking lot, i'm not sure why he decided it was a good thing and decided to tell the police officers. otherwise, more lives would have been lost at his apartment complex. back to the court hearing for a minute, the bond will be set. obviously he's probably not going to get out on bond with the crimes that he's facing. it's not expected to last long at all and, of course, the prosecution has 72 hours to file formal charges. and they undoubtedly will release some of that evidence in the court hearing today but probably have enough evidence to be able to hold him. >> while we learn more about what will happen during the suspect's court appearance today, family, friends and loved ones came together to remember the 12 lives cut short on friday. and there are still victims fighting for their

that is where you are no longer going to use it. now you could still use the argument and you hear that argument more often on the republican side which is just sort of let them all slaughter each other, and without a great consideration of the strategic calculations in the middle east because it's sort of like the middle east, just go away. so, i think that is also a pretty powerful again, i would emphasize -- emphasize if you had to write now put your finger on something that would change the dynamic here, that has to be turkey. turkey. i think, i think professor -- professor, president obama's out of this one unless you see something happen in turkey or if you just see the slaughter accelerate at such a rate that we are more or less obliged to do something. it's possible that if the fsa could get ahold of aleppo and declared a free city to set up an opposition government in aleppo and figure out some way how to stop the armor, the artillery and the planes from driving them out at least for a while, that you could rapidly change the dynamic. and it would certainly be, it would certainly be an

did the u.s. perg title it campus debit card trap? you guessed it. many are charged unreasonable fees that are costing them and the country millions of dollars. according to the report, 15 financial institutions have debit or prepaid card contracts with 878 campuses that serve more than nine million students. it's a big business. 42% of all students nationwide go to school on these 878 campuses. it's a lucrative business for financial institutions. there's a lot of money to be made from fees on college debit cards especially when you start charging fees on the billions of dollars disbursed each year in federal student aid. so the federal money is passing through these cards to the students, the financial institutions are making money in the process. as the u.s. perg report showed some of the fees are clearly unreasonable. one of the most egregious is a per-transaction fee on students for students for using a pin number instead of a signature. one of the largest campus debit card companies, hire one, currently charges students 50 cents every time the student enters his pin number at a
